Genome analysis

The course is based on lectures, exercises, discussions and laboratory sessions. The contents build largely on animal genome research. Both laboratory and theoretical teaching is for the most part directly applicable also within eg. human or plant genetics. The course is based on current state-of-the-art methodology and research.

Computer exercises and group discussions will cover:

  • molecular evolution and phylogenetics/-genomics,

  • genetic variation, sequence analysis and primer design,

  • gene mapping and genomewide association analysis,

  • QTL analysis,

  • whole genome sequencing,

  • epigenetics/-genomics,

  • copy-number variation analysis

The aim of the computer exercises is to give the students useful tools for basic genetic and genomic analyses. Therefore the computer exercises use free and open source software that the student can download to their own laptop. Apart from in the written and the oral examination, compulsory components occur within eg. exercises, group assignments and laboratory sessions.

In the course the following general skills are trained: oral and written communication, problem solving and critical thinking.
